Our New Pamphlet: Deja Vu in Peru

"No discourse on energy should end without noting that Americans are some 6 billion pounds overweight. We carry enough excess preloaded energy—rolls and slabs of fat, layered on our bellies and butts—to sustain the entire population of Afghanistan for a year. Here's another way you could look at it: much of our excess fat comes from the animals we've eaten, which got their energy from the plants they ate, which got their energy from the sunlight they absorbed, which could be traced back to the fusion of hydrogen into helium in the core of the Sun. So, if nothing else, American bodies are formidable repositories of solar energy. Too bad we don't all tap into those 'strategic reserves' and walk off our current energy crisis."

— Neil deGrasse Tyson, "Energy to Burn," Natural History magazine, October 2005
